Hattie Chung



Dr. Hattie Chung is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine, Cardiovascular Research Center. She is a systems and computational biologist with a strong track record of designing cutting-edge methods for obtaining and analyzing high-dimensional genomic data, applied to uncover the cellular organization of tissues. Her lab studies the molecular basis of cellular heterogeneity and tissue organization in health and disease by pioneering cutting-edge computational and experimental methods, with an emphasis on single-cell and spatial genomics technologies. She leads an interdisciplinary team that focuses on ovarian aging, cardiovascular disease, and predictive modeling of drug perturbations.

Dr. Chung completed her PhD in Systems Biology at Harvard University, where she studied evolutionary dynamics during infections using computational genomics, and her BS in Biological Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she studied synthetic biology and drug delivery. As a postdoc at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, she developed cutting-edge single-cell methods that have been widely recognized.
